CAMEO Database of Hazardous Chemicals

Graham Marshall - Thursday, February 23, 2012

CAMEO is a fantastic database of hazardous chemicals that has been developed (for free) by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the USA.  Find it online here.

Emergency responders and planners can use CAMEO to get response recommendations and predict hazards, such as explosions or chemical fires.

You can search through thousands of data sheets, using a name, identification number, or other search criteria to find a particular chemical of interest.

Data sheets for each chemical provide critical response information, including physical properties, health hazards, information about air and water hazards, and recommendations for fire fighting, first aid, and spill response.

Additional data sheets based on UN/NA identification numbers provide response information from the Emergency Response Guidebook and shipping information from the HAZMAT Table (49 CFR 172.101).

Additionally, you can make a collection of chemicals and then use the chemical reactivity tool to predict what hazards could arise if the chemicals were to mix together.

The CAMEO software suite is available in both online and desktop versions and it is free.
